This set of 6 in line right handed Gotoh SG381 locking tuners feature a 1:16 gear ratio for tuning up quickly and accurately. Gotoh's Magnum Locking system is operated by a traditional thumb screw on the back of the tuner for quick and easy string changes. The 6 in line sets have staggered string posts to provide the correct string tension over the nut and eliminate the need for string trees, improving tuning stability, the EAD strings have 20 mm tall posts and then the GBe strings have 18.5 mm posts. The 'Rock-Solid' string post improves the tuning stability of the tuner and stays strong during bending and tremolo use, special elastic parts eliminate any rattle in the post and transmission of string vibration to the instrument is maximised. The tuners are completely sealed and permanently lubricated through Gotoh's 'Lubri-Coat' technology, a coating applied to the worm gear to ensure better contact between the worm and spur gear wheel, backlash is minimised and durability is increased. These tuners have the screw attachment holes offset at a 45 degree angle to the tuner post, this set up is common on a lot of 6 in line headstock designs from Ibanez, Schecter, ESP/Ltd and Jackson.

Excellent quality, great tuners
Really good quality tuners, easy to fit, work brilliantly and the short posts look cool as well as helping with tuning stability.
Only thing to be aware of is that if your guitar has quite a thick headstock, then you might need the non-staggered posts version.
